One area in our lives that requires very serious attention is the passions. These include pride, greed, lust, anger, gluttony, envy and sloth. Our Stewardship relates to how we give of our Time, Talents and Treasures to avoid and defeat these seven grievous sins. Each day we are challenged and each day we must put our pride aside, take less than we need, not desire items that we cannot have, only be angry at the devil, avoid overconsumption (and not just food), not feel animosity when someone else is blessed and not be lazy. This is very difficult but can be overcome with humility, liberality, chastity, mildness, temperance, happiness and diligence. No one said it would be easy, but it is necessary for our Salvation.
